Synchronize OpenStack objects

Fleio is storing a copy of the OpenStack objects in its database. This cache allows Fleio to be faster and puts less load on the OpenStack API.

fleio service

The fleio daemon connects to OpenStack queues and gets push notifications when an OpenStack objects (instances, volumes, networks etc.) are created, modified or deleted.

fleio service processes these notifications and updates the Fleio database.

Automatic synchronization

The synchronization process is running automatically after saving the initial OpenStack configuration and it will populate the Fleio database with OpenStack objects.

Manual synchronization

If you want to do a manual synchronization, this can be done by running the fleio sync.

fleio sync

After the synchronization is finished, it’s also useful to restart the fleio service:

systemctl restart fleio
